Add a little pop to your holiday decor with this fun Scrappy Fabric Garland!
If you saw my Halloween Breakfast Nook, you may have noticed the adorable garland I have hanging across my board and batten. I used the remaining fabric from my Haunted House Pillows to create this Scrappy Fabric Garland. It really looks cute and the best part is you can customize this to any holiday or occasion!

Materials needed to make Scrappy Fabric Garland
1/2 yard of coordinating fabrics
Rotary cutter, mat and acrylic ruler
All you need is 1/2 yard of coordinating fabrics, rotary cutter, mat, acrylic ruler and hemp rope.
I began by cutting my fabric in 1 inch strips. Place your fabric on the cutting mat and square up with the grid. Use your acrylic ruler to measure over 1 inch. Run your rotary blade along edge of the acrylic ruler to cut the desired length. Continue this process until all of the fabric has been cut.
Once my lengths of fabric were cut, I cut those 1 inch strips in to 10 inch increments. So you should be able to get 4 pieces per 1 inch strip.
Grab your hemp rope and measure to the length you need.
To attach the fabric to the rope, you are going to use a Lark’s Head Knot to attach each strip of fabric. Fold each strip in half. Lay the rope over the folded strip and pull the strip through the loop to secure around the rope.
Continue adding the fabric strips until the rope is full.
It really was super easy to make! The entire 8 foot garland took me about 30-45 minutes to complete and I love how it turned out! You can make the fabric strips longer or shorter depending on the look you are going for.
Imagine all the possibilities – Christmas, birthdays, Valentine’s Day…
